U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region


This time of year, piping plovers are returning to beaches up and down the East Coast, preparing to lay eggs and raise chicks in their summer homes. But where have these shorebirds been all winter? Biologists have discovered some in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Service and partners are helping communities realize a new vision of healthy, safe and connected river systems for people and wildlife.

This year make a commitment to help out the environment by making every day easy changes.
